Bakery Andante Cafe opens in Broughton Street.
The first Bakery Andante Cafe has opened above Villeneuve Wines in Broughton Street.
Bakery Andante is known for sourdoughs, focaccia, baguettes, and croissants which are all made using traditional techniques and without additives, enhancers or improvers. Andante started as a small Morningside bakery over a decade ago. A Leith site was also opened recently.
Open seven days a week, Bakery Andante Broughton Street is a bright, light, airy space where customers can pick up freshly-baked bread goods to go or sit in for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Try dishes such as house waffles, French toast, Greek grilled cheese sandwiches or Tuscan Panzanella salad. The counter is full of tempting sweet treats from fresh fruit êclairs and cream-filled profiteroles to carrot cakes, delicate desserts and chocolate.
The bakery promises to focus on the finest ingredients through working with small-scale, independent and local producers wherever possible.
High-welfare charcuterie will come from Hammond Charcuterie, milk and cream from Bonaly Dairy, free-range eggs from the Gosford Estate, and salads will be dressed with Supernature premium cold-pressed rapeseed oil. Coffee beans come from Santu Coffee - grown in Brazil and roasted in Leith’s Biscuit Factory, just a mile from the cafe’s door.
Bakery Andante will also offer plenty of choices for customers with allergies or other dietary requirements, which are given as much thought and importance as every other dish.
Owner and head baker Jon Wood said
“We are delighted to have opened here in Broughton Street. It has been a long-held aim to open a café alongside our retail offerings and also to find a location in such a fantastic area as this.
“I’m also really happy to be able to offer a menu that’s inclusive to those with allergies or other dietary requirements - it’s something very close to my heart because my daughter has coeliac disease.
